Guide to "Climate Protection and Urban Planning in Augsburg"
The guide, "Climate Protection and Urban Planning in Augsburg", aids in the addressing of energy issues early on in the urban planning and building stages. It was designed as a practical guide for the municipality, with the aim of retaining and developing potential for climate protection during all stages of the building process.
Energy-optimised urban structures provide optimal conditions for the inexpensive and effective implementation of building and supply strategies for the reduction in harmful materials. Not only does local climate protection benefit from the reductions in CO2 emissions, but later also the building's owners.
The municipal council supports the guide and recommends its use to investors, property developers and urban planners.
Augsburg's Renewable Energies Internet Portal
The Internet portal "Erneuerbare Energien Augsburg" (Renewable Energies in Augsburg) answers pertinent questions and also calls upon readers to participate themselves. A presentation expounding commendable renewable energy supply systems already up and running in Augsburg is intended to invoke the inhabitants' interest in renewable energies. The portal offers technical information, assistance in the implementation of one's own system and links to other useful sites. These offerings are complemented by access to a variety of topical brochures.
The portal's central aim is to increase the amount of energy generated in Augsburg with renewable energies.
The appealing presentation about where and how renewable energies are already in use is designed to encourage similar projects. The exchange of information between operators and interested parties should be promoted, and communication with the municipal authorities improved.
